Telecommunications Security: An intro to the 10 domains in the CISSP

EXAM 1 Fall 2015

Due in my email by midnight Mon (11/2)

ppt 0-6

Security Policy Paper

  1. Write a document creating an organization wide security policy (If you have no clue look at power points for the first chapters or pages 18-22 in the book).  The paper should give me a real world example of a security policy, security standards, and security guidelines for a real business.  I prefer one written for an orgainzation where you have worked. However, if that is not possible the pick one you are familiar with, for instance your parents' business or a University Business School.

  2. Use of the vulnerabilities, risks, threats, and and other pertinant information from our links would be a good place to start.

  3. Given that most of you have never worked on this type of thing in the “real world” this paper is briefer that the those which would be implemented. Work for applicable but brief (maybe 5 or so pages) paper.

  4. Due NO LATER THAN 12/6 but 12/3 would be MUCH better
